  1. I agree. Not a WWI cockpit I've ever seen and he died in 1918 so .....
  2. I dont have a bottle (yet) but I do have a cap
  3. I would probably guess the 50's since that was the era in the Corps when they were the most popular
  4. Yah I think I saw one in a surplus store in Houston too
  5. As a Jarhead I really love to see the evolution of the uniform! Makes me appreciate the Dress Blues just that much more seeing from whence they came! Semper Fi
  6. I know they were popular in the 50's with Marine Officers and Senior NCOs until the new commandant Shoup made them unpopular by saying if you feel you need to carry one do so. I had the brass tip of my dad's with an EGA on it so restored it for him several years ago. On the bottom end I put a WWII dated .50 cal brass casing I found in the desert near Quartzsite AZ where Patton trained tank crews
  7. Very cool. The picture ties so much together
  8. And in Texas theyd wonder why there wasnt 4 boxes of bullets to go with it! Nice rig BTW !
  9. Youd think they would at least use the same font type?
  10. Not that I know anything but I think the fact 25 is a bigger font than the rest of the lettering leads credence to the rack number theory
